Sofie was born in Denmark and raised by two Special Ed teachers. Her father is an entrepreneur, having created an entire education system for Special Ed students in Denmark. She moved to the US in 1999 after meeting her husband, and had previously completed her nursing education in her native country. Working in pediatrics for many years, she noticed how children were not well-prepared for medical procedures, and when her son had a negative experience undergoing a procedure, she decided to take matters into her own hands. In partnership with illustrator Mike Ferrin, Sofie has now created her own line of children's books with the goal of assisting children in being prepared for various medical and diagnostic procedures.
